Name: 2012 By the Dozen Challenge
Duration: 1 January 2012 – 31 December 2012
For 2012, I’m going to focus more on doing my own, personal, reading challenges. This doesn’t mean that I won’t sign up for other challenges. I love finding ways to cross-challenge books, but I probably won’t sign up for as many as I have in the past and I’ll look for low/flexible requirements.
I came up with this challenge when I decided that I wouldn’t do another “Countdown” type, but I still wanted to do something like my list I dubbed “the Sweet Sixteen”. I decided on three sets of 12 books, each set based on a certain criteria. I almost made it four dozen, but that fourth group was better suited for its own challenge since it wouldn’t fit the “1 January t0 31 December” time frame.
The three categories are:
The 1st Dozen: Twelve Books first published in 2012 – that pretty much sums it up.
The 2nd Dozen: Perpetual – On-going goal to read books by Georgette Heyer, the Star Wars Expanded Universe (SWEU), and the “In Death” series.
The 3rd Dozen: Chipping away at series — this was the basis for the challenge and is a continuation of what comprised the “Sweet Sixteen” list this year.
I’ve created a separate page for tracking, which I will eventually post.
